Quick update of where I’m at with my own training at the moment. Currently sitting in a moderate/high calorie surplus to assist a progressive increase in training volume. The surplus is resulting in a slight accumulation of fat mass as expected, which I hold mostly around the mid-section and glutes. However, training feels great and I’m consistently making progress on all of my lifts and techniques.
My split at the moment is an upper/lower, training 4-5 times a week depending on recovery. The legs have certainly been responding well over the past few months to relatively light loads, with a great deal of my focus shifting towards achieving optimal contractions during each rep of my training sets. For now, I'm just enjoying the process and staying consistent!
The plan from here is to continue with the calorie surplus late into 2017 and slowly transition into a cutting phase early 2018. It’s always nice having shredded abs, but for now I’m thoroughly enjoying my progression in the gym and eating lots of food.
Big thanks to my training partner @mattypenfold for the form checks and revealing my rock hard nips during last night’s midnight upper session.
